Upon arrival at Cairo airport, you will find our representative waiting for you to assist you with the formalities, help you to get your entry visa, drive to your hotel, and help you check-in to your room. At 6:30 pm we will have a meeting for introductions, followed by a Welcome Dinner together. Overnight at Le Meridien Pyramids (D)
After breakfast, we will visit the most famous monuments in Egypt: the Giza pyramids. We will explore the area around the Great Pyramid and then drive to the Second Pyramid, where we will visit the Mortuary Temple and Valley Temple. From inside the Valley Temple, we will take a short-cut to the Sphinx. After Lunch, we will have the chance to visit one of the essential oil centers in the area. We will also visit the Grand Egyptian Museum to see the world’s largest collection of the Ancient Egyptian antiquities, especially the collection of King Tut. Overnight at Le Meridien Pyramids (B.L)
After Breakfast, we will drive to Saqqara, home of the Step Pyramid attributed to King Djoser. We will visit the newly opened pyramid, ‘Pyramid of Unas’, where we will see the earliest pyramid text. We will also visit the mystical Serapeum, a huge subterranean complex. We’ll have lunch at Sakkara Palm Club. We will drive to Dahshur to visit the Bent and Red pyramids and enter the Red Pyramid. Overnight at Le Meridien Pyramids (B, L)
Early in the morning, we fly to Sohag, then we drive to Abydos. On our arrival, we will visit the Seti I Temple, the only temple that has nine Holy of Holies. The carvings and reliefs in this temple are in incredibly well-preserved. Behind this Temple lies the megalithic underground structure known as The Osirion which has several depictions of the Flower of Life on the huge pillars. After lunch, we will be driven to Dendera where we will visit the incredible Temple of Hathor, a site that Chris Dunn, author of Giza, The Power Plant, believes should have been listed as one of the ancient wonders of our world! Star maps depicted on the ceilings in this temple, and the replica of famous Dendera Zodiac (the original is displayed at the Louvre in Paris), point to the ancient origins of astrology and superior knowledge of our Solar System. Drive to Luxor, Overnight at Steigenberger Luxor (B.L)
After breakfast, we will embark on our exploration of the sites on the West Bank including the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut’s Temple. Hatshepsut, meaning ‘Foremost of noble ladies’, is considered the second historically confirmed female pharaoh after Sobekneferu. The temple dedicated to her and built in a semi-circle of cliffs has been described as one of the greatest Egyptian architectural achievements. After visiting the Colossi of Memnon, we’ll check into our rooms on the luxurious 5-star Blue Shadow Cruise Ship and enjoy a buffet lunch. There will be time to relax before our evening visit to Luxor Temple. Overnight at Nile Cruise (B.L.D)
Early morning visit to Karnak, the world’s largest temple. This huge temple complex in Luxor was one of ancient Egypt’s grandest and most ambitious building projects. Its multiple temple buildings are monuments to a list of pharaohs who all wanted to stamp their mark on the kingdom’s most revered religious sanctuary. This was the house of the gods, and its glories were to be feted by all. During our visit, we will experience the powerful Chapel of Sekhmet, the Neter who represents the potent and purifying energies of the sun. After, we will visit the newly opened Precinct of Mut, one of the four main temple enclosures that make up the Karnak Temple Complex. By noon we sail to Esna. Overnight at the Nile Cruise (B.L.D)
After breakfast, we will gather together for lectures. By late afternoon, our cruise ship will dock beside the Temples of Sobek & Horus at Kom Ombo. It is here that the ancient initiates would face and learn how to digest their fear & anger (as represented by the crocodile Neter, Sobek), emotions that can severely inhibit our spiritual growth. In Drunvalo Melchizedek’s second volume of The Ancient Secrets of The Flower of Life, he mentions that this temple represents the second chakra, as it is the only one that’s dedicated to polarity, or duality, which is the basis of sexuality, and two gods are associated with it: Sobek, the crocodile god, and Horus. As you face the temple, the right half is dedicated to darkness and the left side to the light. How appropriate that this was such an important site for initiations. Overnight at the Nile Cruise (B.L.D)
After breakfast will have the opportunity to visit the beautiful Isis Temple, an ancient pilgrimage center for the cult of Isis. This sacred site was glorified from the Ancient Egyptian era up to the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods with each ruler adding their own stamp onto the stones here. On our way back to our boat we will explore the famous Aswan granite quarry which has the 1,200-ton Unfinished Obelisk, a structure that only very few cranes worldwide could lift today, yet more evidence of the higher technologies used by the ancient Egyptians. After lunch, we will sail by motorboat to Elephantine Island, where we will experience the unique and powerful energies of this location, while also visiting the temple dedicated to the Neter, Khnum, who was the “The Maker of the Ka”. Overnight Nile Cruise (B, L, D)
We will have the opportunity to visit the beautiful Abu Simbel Temple, the rock-cut temple in the depths of the Nubian land. Overnight Aswan hotel (B, L)
We fly to Cairo. the day is free, and in the evening, we will take a private visit inside the Great Pyramid for two hours. After the visit, we will have our farewell dinner. Overnight at Mena House Hotel (B.D)
